As the weather continues to heat up, I find that I still need a lightweight cardigan to wear in the office or outside in the evening.
Our cotton boucle megaskeins are the perfect yarn, and with 475-500grams per skein, one is all you need for that summer knitting project!
Remember that slubby texture means that the yarn knits up with a lovely drape on a 4mm needle, so although it’s classed as a 4ply, try searching for DK-weight patterns – and remember to swatch!
A quick browse through the pattern library on Ravelry gives some great ideas with free patterns, such as this Cinnamon Toast three-quarter sleeve cardigan.
Being an easy-knit stocking stitch design worked classically in separate pieces from the bottom up, this should be a quick win. It’s sure to look great with the boucle texture of our handdyed cotton yarns.
If you prefer something a little more challenging, try the Lisette sweater. It features beautiful scrolling lacework around the neckline fading down into the body, which will add interest to your knitting.
